Very interesting. I like the look of option 4. I've been thinking recently (WARNING - NOT LOOKING TO GET INTO A POLITICAL DEBATE!!) that IF Wales were ever to gain its independence there would be a sudden need for a load of embassy/consulate premises, most likely in Cardiff Bay. It could transform from a fairly quiet mixed-use office district into a bustling diplomatic quarter in the space of a few short years. Anyway, once again I don't want to get into any political debates, just introducing a hypothetical :)

The countries who want an embassy/consulate in Cardiff perhaps? There are already a few consulates/vice consulates here

I've always thought that the buildings around Mount Stuart Square would be good for this sort of thing.

I always thought that the group of houses just north of Cathays Park (something gardens) woukd make a nice set of embassies
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.

There are a few , they are just rooms in houses or small offices , can't see any countries wanting to spend money on embassies for such a small country when they have them in London already.

I'm guessing there are no embassies or consulates in Dublin, given it is a small country in close proximity to London because no one would want to pay for them.

so, if Wales did go independent there are already plenty of countries that have a representative office in the capital of Wales.
